...and anyone that says that in their profile is probably a bit of a fibber :) I mean, let's be serious...does anyone out there come home from work and put on DRESSIER clothes?
OK, on to more serious matters... I guess I'll start with what I generally (and I use that term loosely) am looking for:
I tend to like guys that are a little nerdy, with a great smile and a wicked sense of humor. Nerdy with an edge. I'm looking for someone who is kind, compassionate, SMART, FUNNY...someone who gets me. I enjoy people who like to learn and try new things, who have some motivation and their own interests. Someone who likes to hike would be awesome. Oh, and if you yell "Get a job!" at homeless people, I don't think we'll work. .
Some facts about me: I am always cold, my house is neat but my car is a disaster area, I would eat cereal for every meal if it were socially acceptable and I can often go most of the day without turning on the TV (But I DO watch TV). I love being outside, and enjoy day trips or weekends in the country, but I am definitely a city girl. So if you describe yourself as a "country boy" we are probably not a match. What else, what else??... I love animals, swimming and traveling. My sense of humor is kind of sarcastic and dry, but also sometimes goofy. I like dark beer, but don't drink often. I'd rather be honest than nice, but I try my best to combine the two. I've been told I'm not your average girl, and while that's probably true, I do get pedicures and buy lots of shoes, so where does that leave me? If any of this resonates, or you'd like to know more, let me know.
Here are some potential dealbreakers about myself:
1. I swear
2. I don't like steak, most seafood (but love crab) or most wines.
3. I am a little bit of a hippie (in personality, not appearance).
4. I don't go to church.
5. Skiing scares the bejeezus out of me (yes, I've tried it).
I like to think I'm the type of person who values differences in people and their lifestyles and am looking for someone who shares that quality. Openmindedness is a huge turn-on.
Two of my "mottos" for life are:
1. When I get to the end, I don't want to feel as if I have wasted it.
2. I don't want to make anyone else's life more difficult than it is already. (This one is definitely more of a challenge than the first as I do succumb to road rage now and then.)
For me this all seems very backward. It's so hard to tell if there's any kind of a connection without being face to face. But, I'm willing to give it a shot. Seriously though, let's try to limit the number of emails and calls before meeting.
PS...the guy in the pic with me is comedian Josh Sneed, not some old boyfriend. ;)
PPS...My divorce was final over 5 yrs ago, for those of you who want to ask but are too polite.
